Capt. C.A. Richardson is a full time fishing guide, television show host, and fishing instructor based in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. He specializes in light tackle, artificial lures, fly, and shallow water fishing for some of Florida's most sought after game fish such as snook, trout, redfish and tarpon. C.A. also enjoys fishing for many other types of gamefish fish as he travels the coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean filming his award winning TV show, FlatsClass TV. He targets everything from Peacock Bass to Bonefish, both in his local waters and in other top skinny water destinations to bring his audience the best instructional entertainment.
C.A. has been instrumental in consulting on many of Z-Man's new inshore saltwater bait profiles and color patterns and has been a member of the Z-Man team for over six years. He resides with his wife Jessica in St. Petersburg, FL where he bases his guiding operations, though he routinely guides in other parts of Florida as well as Louisiana to expose his charter clients to the very best shallow water fishing.
